in tonights medical watch ... theyre living longer healthier lives than ever before but their healthcare needs arent fully understood. thats why one local doctor whos devoted his practice to adults with down syndrome wants to share his experience. "hi michelle, how are you? good to see you." for 22 years, dr brian chicoine has treated patients with down syndrome. its his lifes work and he loves every minute. "i do ... the folks with down syndrome, thats the highlight." he knows his patients well. "hows basketball?" all 5,500 of them at advocates adult down syndrome center in park ridge. "we have the advantage now of having seen over 5500 people. there isnt anyone else with that sample size in the united states. we want to take that information and share that." not only would dr chicoine like to share his deep understanding of the patients so near and dear to his heart, hed like to create specific screening guidelines for what is now an
9:24 pm
aging population. "even as late as the 1980 the life expectancy was only in the 20s and 30s and now its shot all the way up to 60. so some of these screening issues in the past really were not important because we didnt worry about what to do for adults b/c there werent any." thats because 40 to 60 percent of babies born with down syndrome have congenital heart disease. surgical advancements have made a significant impact - boosting survival rates. patients are living longer - presenting new challenges their caregivers. "there wasnt evidence based recommendations with regards to just the routine screenings. everyone would typically have mammograms, colon cancer screening, etc." but some common diseases among the general population arent as common among adults with down syndrome. colon and breast cancer rates are low. and even though there is a higher incidence of obesity among people with down syndrome, doctors see very little heart disease, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes.

"there are some conditions that are more common, for example celiac disease is more common in people with down syndrome." christine maxwell is among them. "i had to change my diet because im a celiac." shes mastered the art of preparing gluten-free meals. still, the diagnosis took her by surprise. the 36-year-old hadnt experienced typical symptoms, but a routine blood test revealed her allergy. most cases arent as clear. "the blood test for people with down syndrome is not as accurate as it is in people without down syndrome. if we are going to have screening, perhaps there is something different we need to do." "having the opportunity to pause and think and do it in a thoughtful way makes a big difference." if youd like to learn more about the adult down syndrome center, go to our website, back to you. most people have already taken
